Josephine and Benjamin Webber Trusts

Established to support female students from Arizona mining communities who were interested in studying “home economics” curriculums, the Webbers established two trusts. Their desire was to ensure that Hispanic women living in Arizona mining communities (finishing high school in an Arizona mining community) who were interested in studying a home economics curriculum be given preference for the funds from their Trusts.
